Sausage Stuffed Bread


  • Prep Time: 30 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 hour 50 minutes

2 loaves, 12 servings



6 to 6-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons Spice Islands® Ground Mustard

2 envelopes Fleischmann's® RapidRise Yeast

1-1/2 teaspoons salt

1 cup milk

1/4 cup water

3/4 cup butter OR margarine

1/4 cup maple syrup

1 egg

1 egg yolk

Sausage-Cheese Filling:

1-1/2 pounds sweet Italian sausage

1 large green pepper, chopped

1 medium onion, chopped

8 ounces (2 cups) shredded cheddar cheese

Maple Glaze:

2 tablespoons butter OR margarine, melted

1 tablespoon maple syrup

2 teaspoons Spice Islands® Whole Mustard Seed


Combine 2 cups flour, ground mustard, yeast and salt in a large bowl.  Heat milk, water, butter and syrup until very warm (120-130°F).  Gradually add to flour mixture.  Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally.  Add egg, egg yolk and 1 cup flour; beat 2 minutes at high speed.  Stir in enough remaining flour to make soft dough.  Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes.  Cover; let rise 10 minutes.

Divide dough in half; roll each to 15 x 8-inch rectangle.  Spread evenly with Sausage-Cheese Filling.  Beginning on long end, rollup tightly as for jelly roll.  Pinch seams and ends to seal.

Place on large greased baking sheet, curving ends to form a horseshoe.  Repeat with second roll.  Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

With sharp knife, make 5 diagonal slashes, about 1/4-inch deep through the surface.  Brush with Maple Glaze; sprinkle with mustard seeds.  Bake at 400 for 15 to 20 minutes or until done.  Place baking sheet on rack and cool for 20 minutes.  Serve warm.

Sausage Cheese Filling:  Cook sausage over medium-high heat in a skillet until browned, stirring to crumble.  Add bell pepper and onion; cook until tender, about 5 to 10 minutes, stirring frequently.  Let cool.  Stir in cheese.

Maple Glaze:  Combine melted butter and maple syrup in a small bowl.  Stir until well blended.
